Under no circumstance will he get involved with the kids’ tempting new nanny.

Oh - and if she and Owen accidentally take their attraction farther than they should? Well, some rules are made to be broken....

Another fun series addition!
I am loving the characters of the Far North series just as much as the Due South ones!
Gracie Cooper, little sister of Glen from Know Your Heart , is at loose ends in her life. Unable to stomach staying with their overbearing and demanding father for even a weekend, she heads off to visit her big bro and his fiancee until her next job calls her...only she doesn't actually make it there, not really. She's waylaid along the way by two babysitter escapees, one who looks suspiciously like a human minion and the other who clearly needs a trip to the emergency room.
The emergency room where their uncle and temporary guardian, Dr. Owen "O is for Awesome" Bennett works. Coincidence? Of course not! How else can we throw these two obviously-opposites-but-still-clearly-meant-for-each-other people together? ;)
His babysitter has just quit, she needs a temporary job, the kids will go back to his mother's in two months...what could go wrong?
LOL...like you have to ask!
I adored Gracie and Owen (and all the different "O is for..." names that she and her friends will come up with throughout the book), and Morgan, Will (or William, never Willie, for a reason I agree with but that still makes me LOL), and Charlie (NOT Charlotte!) were such a fun group of kids--not at all plot-moppety. Watching Owen learn to loosen up once again and Gracie finally find some roots was such a good time. And Owen's ever-evolving "house rules" made me laugh out loud--and wince--because yeah, Legos hurt. I'm with you there, Dr. McDreamy.
Though the couples from the first two books do play roles here, this one would work fine as a standalone if you haven't had a chance to read them yet. (But read them later! Trust me, you won't be sorry.) And fortunately, there's still a few suspiciously single characters floating around town who clearly need their own HEAs, so there's good hope that we'll see more of Gracie, Owen, Morgan, Will, and Charlie in the future too :)
The audiobook, as always, is nicely narrated by Rose O'Toole. It adds an extra layer of fun to hear everything said in an authentic NZ accent.
